The railroad started as a 3 ft (914 mm) narrow gauge line running south from Denver, Colorado in 1870. It served mainly as a transcontinental bridge line between Denver, and Salt Lake City, Utah. The Rio Grande was also a major origin of coal and mineral traffic...The Rio Grande was the epitome of mountain railroading, with a motto of Through the Rockies, not around them and later Main line through the Rockies, both referring to the Rocky Mountains. The D&RGW operated the highest mainline rail line in the United States, over the 10,240 feet (3,120 m) Tennessee Pass in Colorado, and the famed routes through the Moffat Tunnel and the Royal Gorge. At its height, around 1890, the D&RG had the largest operating narrow gauge railroad network in North America. Known for its independence, the D&RGW operated the last private intercity passenger train in the United States, the Rio Grande Zephyr. " This map is corrected through January 1st, 1904.

What vast changes have taken place in those thousand years! Languages have died out. Nations have risen and fallen. Empires have been founded and have passed away...." "Romsey Abbey is a parish church of the Church of England in Romsey, a market town in Hampshire, England. Until the dissolution it was the church of a Benedictine nunnery. It is now the largest parish church in the county since Christchurch Priory is now in Dorset. The church was originally built during the 10th century, as part of a Benedictine foundation. The surviving church is the town's outstanding feature, which is all the more remarkable because the abbey, as a nunnery, would have been less well financially endowed than other religious establishments of the time.".

The Bristol Tune-Book a Manual of Chants and Tunes (Including the 1881 Suppliment)
Bristol / London: Novello, Ewer and Co, London and W. and F. Morgan, Bristol, England, 1881. Hardcover. Musical Notation; Full calf leather binding with gilt lettering to the spine and all edges gilt (AEG). (apparently this is the Superior Binding edition). This book is in Very Good- condition overall. The spine joints, spine ends and edges of the book covers have rubbing and wear. There is a two inch-long tear / separation to the front spine joint where the leather has cracked. The text pages are generally clean and bright, though several of the leaves have come loose. There is foxing to the free endpages, and to some of the text pages. There are several pages with edge tears. All edges of the text block are gilt (AEG). There is a small section of approximately 10 pages towards the rear of the book with edge tears to the foredges of the pages which have been carefully repaired by a former owner using rice paper. This book contains musical notations for hymns and chants of all styles -- only a relatively small portion of the hyms / chants have words included. "The compilers of the Bristol Tune Book originally contemplated the convenience of congregations with which they are connected, by supplying, in a single volume, a complete selection of the best Tunes and Chants; hence it's local appellation. Their object was, to produce a work sufficiently comprehensive, varied as to style, correct in harmony, and systematically arranged for practical use; which, while containing many compositions of such beauty as to repay the attention of practiced choirs, should not be beyond the attainment of most congregations.".

The contracts included how many acres to be farmed and what types of tomatoes per acre. Most of the acreage is in the Lodi, CA area. One early grower of tomatoes in the area, Newt Robinson, wrote about the crops in his biography: "Again dry years intervened and because of the increasing salinity of his irrigation water, Newt experimented with yet another crop: We found tomatoes were much more tolerant of poor quality water than were beans ... I was the first person I know of on Roberts Island or on Union Island who raised tomatoes. I think the year was 1935 or 1936. We raised those great big beefsteak. The vines grew so fast and with such vigor that they covered the row on the virgin land so we had a difficult time irrigating them on the final irrigation.". Very Good+ .

It claimed to be "the only magazine published in the United States which is devoted to a fearless and uncompromising exposure of the monstrous crimes and frauds of the party in power." Lincoln was often referred to as "Abraham I"; the conflict was "the Lincoln War" fought by "the Abolition Army"." There is constant mention of "The Rump Congress" and the Rump Revolution. Most articles discuss the American Congress and discuss the problems of Abraham Lincoln. Other articles discuss politics or political science in the United States or elsewhere.

"John Habberton (1842–1921) was an American author.

Habberton also wrote Helen's Babies, published in 1876 by Loring Publisher, Boston; and in the early 20th Century by George Routledge and Sons, London. In most of these copies, Habberton is not listed as the author. The novel is subtitled: "Helen's Babies with some account of their ways...innocent, crafty, angelic, impish, witching and repulsive by THEIR LATEST VICTIM." The book was one of the Ruby Books series for boys and girls. Habberton is acknowledged as the author of the book in an advertisement within the 1903 edition of Andersen's Fairy Tales published by Routledge.". Good+ .

[EPHEMERA] [PHOTO] [SIGNED PHOTO] [BALLET] [ANTON DOLIN]
Signed Photograph of Sir Anton Dolin
No Place: No Publisher Listed, 1965. Hardcover. B&W Photographs; SIGNED EDITION. 8"x12" photo in an 11"x14" frame. The photo is in Near Fine to Fine condition (there's a paper backing on the frame which I hate to disturb). The photo has been signed with blue ink by the subject, Sir Anton Dolin "Beloved Hazel, Devotedly, Anton. 1965" From Wikipedia: "Sir Anton Dolin (27 July 1904 – 25 November 1983) was an English ballet dancer and choreographer. Dolin was born in Slinfold in Sussex as Sydney Francis Patrick Chippendall Healey-Kay but was generally known as Patrick Kay. He trained at Serafina Astafieva's school at The Pheasantry in London's King's Road. He joined Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in 1921, was a principal there from 1924, and was a principal with the Vic-Wells Ballet in the 1930s. There he danced with Alicia Markova, with whom he went on to found the Markova-Dolin Ballet and the London Festival Ballet." and from the NY Times obituary: " As a dancer, Sir Anton repeatedly found himself the male star in ballet companies that were launched under his auspices or in which he played an influential role. When British ballet was in its infancy, Dame Ninette de Valois asked him to dance in her productions for the Camargo Society, which he helped form in 1930. When she founded what is now the Royal Ballet, Sir Anton and Dame Alicia Markova were its stars. The two young Diaghilev alumni formed one of the great partnerships of classical ballet. In 1935, both dancers left the Vic-Wells Ballet to form their own company, the Markova-Dolin Ballet, which continued until 1938. From 1945 to 1948 they headed a touring unit. In 1949, they established a new British troupe, which became London's Festival Ballet in 1950. As its artistic director and principal dancer until 1961, Sir Anton promoted an eclectic repertory and touring policy that made Festival Ballet the popular British company it is today. He was knighted in 1981." The recipient of the inscription is Hazel Hergenhohn, or Baroness Hazel Hergenhohn -- who resided in the San Francisco Bay area in the 1950's-1960's and kept on-going friendships with a number of jet-setter types. It appears she was either a patron of the SF ballet, or was able to mingle with the principles as this is only one of several signed photos of principal dancers in her collection. ; Signed by Artist.

Music critic Alan Blyth said: "Her voice was a rich, vibrant contralto of intrinsic beauty." Most of her singing career was spent performing in concert and recital in major music venues and with famous orchestras throughout the United States and Europe between 1925 and 1965. Although offered roles with many important European opera companies, Anderson declined, as she had no training in acting. She preferred to perform in concert and recital only. She did, however, perform opera arias within her concerts and recitals. She made many recordings that reflected her broad performance repertoire of everything from concert literature to lieder to opera to traditional American songs and spirituals. Between 1940 and 1965 the German-American pianist Franz Rupp was her permanent accompanist.". Very Good+ .
